White to play and win

 

 

 

Solution

 

Somehow, on this page of the book, there were several easy enough puzzles. Here, the motif is self evident: sac on b6, and promote: using the B to deflect or prevent the R from defending. White can win in two essentially similar ways: 1 Rb6, as played, or 1 Nd4, as I preferred: they are more or less equivalent, save that 1 Rb6 gives more for white to calculate.

So, straightforward, but pretty.
